The McLife Goes East

Well, friends. Today is the day. Today is the day I tell you one of the reasons I haven't been posting so much these past couple of months. And it's a doozy. Are you ready?

We are moving. Not just moving. We are moving. It is with excitement, as well as some sadness, that we are packing up and heading east. To Mississippi that is. You heard right. This past weekend Mike accepted the call to serve as Pastor of Spiritual Development at Hernando Baptist Church. Hernando is here:


As you can see, it's not exactly just a quick trip away from the large metropolis that we have called home these past 27 years. Except for those four years in Waco, which is definitely not considered a metropolis.

As sad as we are to leave our family and friends, we cannot wait to embark on this new adventure! We feel that this is exactly where God has called us to live and serve, and we can't wait to see what happens in the next few years.

Don't worry, though, I am probably going to do this to our roof.


That won't be obnoxious at all, will it? Anyhow, I'm sure the posting will get a lot more frequent around here now that I have so much to talk about. More information to come!

I am happy for you but sad for us. How long is the drive? Let us know how we can help and we'll be right there.

BOOOOOOOOOO! Kidding kidding. I think the roof is great, but might be a little much. How bout just flying the Texas flag in your front yard?! How weird will it be that after saying the pledge in the morning at school, it won't be followed with the pledge to the Texas flag?!

Oh wow! We'll be praying for a smooth transition for you guys...and I happen to think that the roof would not be obnoxious at all:)
